James McAvoy Trades Goat Legs For 'Welcome To The Punch'
James McAvoy is joining Welcome To The Punch, a script that placed highly on last year's Brit List. Helmed by up and coming writer/director Eran Creevy, the story is reminiscent of Heat, with a London detective being confronted by his armed robber nemesis after five years of silence. That plot is said to be just the tip of a massive conspiracy in the tense British thriller. My prediction, the gas stations are behind the whole thing. They set the robber back on the streets. He ends up blowing up gas stations during shoot-outs in his attempts to allude capture. The gas stations reap the benefits of huge insurance pay-outs. It's text book. (Deadline)
